Delivering rapid solutions to state and local governments to expedite housing funds to homeowners
The U.S. Treasury’s Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) provides funding to states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, Tribes or Tribal entities, and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands to offer relief to vulnerable homeowners in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, intended to help prevent mortgage delinquencies and defaults, foreclosures, loss of utilities or home energy services, and displacement.
